Puerto Rico Votes To Become 51st State Reader 06/12/2017 (Mon) 09:12:07 Id: f3cc35 [Preview] No. 966 [Reply]
http://www.thegoldwater.com/news/3550-Puerto-Rico-victorious-in-Vote-for-51st-Statehood

>Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rosello leads the push for U.S. Statehood in an attempt to become the fifty-first state of the Union. Puerto Rico has held a referendum on whether or not to enter Statehood, and in a resounding yet non-binding victory, the measure has passed.

>In San Juan; Gov. Ricardo Rossello spoke before flag-waving supporters on Sunday evening suggesting in the immediate future he will announce the creations of a commission to appoint a total of two senators and five representatives from Puerto Rico to stand before the U.S. Congress, which has to approve any changes to the island’s political status.

>Governor Rossello said to the enthusiastic crowd of victorious Puerto Ricans; “The United States of America will have to obey the will of our people!”

>However even with the major victory for a Puerto Rican statehood on the homefront; the uphill battle will begin in presenting a case to the United States Congress which is currently under GOP control to rectify and announce the inclusion of Puerto Rico. Many analysts suggest American lawmakers will require major changes to the domestic policy of Puerto Rico to gain such an approval.

>Over a half million Puerto Ricans have participated in the referendum in favor of the statehood. It has gained such an enormous sense of urgency that viral memes have spread across the popular social media websites and chat groups encouraging statehood. Even with a lower than expected turnout rate of 23 percent 7,800 votes for free association/independence were and 6,800 votes for the current territorial status against statehood hit the ballots.

>There is, however, controversy brewing as former Governor Alejandro Garcia Padilla rejected the results of the referendum entirely. In a statement, former Governor Padilla said, “Whoever claims that statehood triumphed is being intellectually dishonest. The boycott defeated statehood.”

>Governor Rossello, however, implied that those concerns are coming from a defeatist group, noting that the referendum was a democratic process in which the majority prevailed. Three other political parties and their supporters boycotted the referendum entirely which led to the outstanding victory for Rossello and his statehood advancement hopes. “We have been a colony for 500 years, and we have had U.S. citizenship for 100 years, but it’s been a second class one,” Rossello said.

President Trump Should Fire Robert Mueller Who Has A History of Illicit Activities and Corruption Reader 06/13/2017 (Tue) 05:31:18 Id: 5dc71a [Preview] No. 975 [Reply]

President Trump Should Fire Robert Mueller Who Has A History Of Corruption And Illicit Activities

>After Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the Russian Investigation into President Trump's alleged ties due to criticisms from the Democratic Party’s most vocal mouthpieces and the radical Liberal Media, Robert S. Mueller III was appointed as special counsel to oversee the investigation.
>Many of the Conservative allies of President Trump on Capitol Hill have touted that such an unnecessary action is a provocation from the left to further discredit and attempt to smear the current administration.
>Who benefits from these relentless attacks against the President though, and why? The answer is clear to anyone willing to pinpoint the logic of dragging the administration through the mid further. The Democratic Party (and their allies in the Liberal Media) can keep their base rallied against any future legislation from the President or the GOP by casting an uncertain doubt over his legitimacy.
>On PBS’ Newshour Monday, close confidant of President Trump Christopher Ruddy who is the chief executive of Newsmax Media made a statement. He met with President Trump at the White House on Monday and said that President Trump was wholeheartedly “considering, perhaps, terminating the special counsel.”
>Robert Mueller has a long history however of presiding over controversial cover-ups and blatant violations of the Constitution. Not only did he serve under President Bush during the obvious intentional lies that led to the invasion of Iraq, but he's been accused of shutting down 9/11 truths as well.
>So let's rewind to the beginning of September in 2001. A week before the devastating attacks of September 11th that would forever change the course of American History, Robert S. Mueller was sworn in as the FBI Director under President George W. Bush.
>During the spring and summer of that same year prior to the attacks on 9/11, the intelligence community was given extreme warnings through intelligence gathering on the ground as well as foreign entities that AlQaeda was gearing up for a major attack on US soil. In fact so many foreign agencies from Russian to British to Israeli intelligence all allegedly told the American Intelligence Community that an attack was imminent.
>Then September 11th happened. The single most deadly attack on American soil against civilians in the history of the nation. The world was shocked as America's anger raged at the same time it was mourning and feeling sorrow.


Reader 06/13/2017 (Tue) 05:31:33 Id: 5dc71a [Preview] No. 976 del
>Later Mueller would go on to encourage the Bush/Cheney ‘War On Terror’ and invasion of Iraq. These very actions have been decided to have been based on completely bogus intelligence and misrepresented facts. Another major failure of the intelligence community under Mueller. Thus failure however has cost thousands of American lives, trillions of American dollars, and forever destroyed the Persian Gulf into a hotbed of terrorist training grounds.
>In the aftermath of the 9/11 attack Mueller oversaw the round up if over one thousand immigrants into detention as well. All of these one thousand immigrants were later deemed to have simply been in the wrong place at the wrong time. None of them were in fact criminals. So the very attacks used against the President by the left regarding unfair treatment of immigrants are the very actions of the man the left is touting as a hero in Robert Mueller.
>Even before his time as FBI Director Robert Mueller had controversy surrounding him. He was Acting U.S. Attorney in Boston during an ongoing cover up of the FBI’s illegal deals with mobster Whitey Bulger and other high profile informants who committed countless murders and crimes.
>At the end of that period it was finally uncovered by honest judges and actual investigative journalists that US taxpayers footed a $100 million court award to four men framed for murders committed by the FBI operated)Bulger gang. Yes Robert Mueller oversaw that mishap too.
>So would it be fair to assume Robert Mueller is not a man worthy of overseeing a legitimate and unbiased investigation into the President of the United States of America and his administration? Absolutely. Would it be fair to suggest Robert Mueller has a history of corruption and cover-ups? Certainly. President Trump would be within his rights as a Patriotic and honest American President to terminate Robert Mueller from Special Counsel indefinitely.

http://thegoldwater.com/news/3585-Physical-Brawl-Free-For-All-at-Pennsylvania-Waffle-House

>In Lancaster, Pennsylvania a late night meal at Waffle House designed to be a fulfilling experience turned into absolute chaos. Five women began a physical free for all fighting each other in what should have been a friendly environment.

>In a daring Facebook video video patrons can be seen throwing devastating punches, ripping out each other's hair, and using eating utensils as weapons. In one moment of the video a suspect is seen smashing another customer into the dining room tables.

>Police have identified the perpetrators as Deborah Shivers, 56; Tyneisha Shivers, 37; Latonia Shivers, 31; and Mercedes Shivers, 25. All of these suspects reside in nearby Redding, Pennsylvania. The fifth suspect, Tonisha Shivers, 37, resides in Dallas, Texas.

>Seemingly a normal night of service for Waffle House employees has soon turned into an event of madness that none will soon forget.

>Local authorities at the Mannheim Township Police Department stated the five violent patrons would be charged with disorderly conduct, a low level misdemeanor with a possible jail sentence and a certain fine.

>The video posted to Facebook has been viewed over 100,000 times at the time of this article's writing. An unidentified person called 911 to report the incident.



First New Coal Mine of the President Trump Era Opens In Pennsylvania Reader 06/12/2017 (Mon) 22:41:42 Id: f53145 [Preview] No. 972 [Reply]
http://thegoldwater.com/news/3578-First-New-Coal-Mine-of-the-President-Trump-Era-Opens-In-Pennsylvania-To-Extraordinary-Praise

https://archive.is/sR9RN

>President Trump ran a campaign of protecting American industry including and not limited to the United States’ historic Coal Manufacturers. ‘Make Coal Great Again’ was applauded all throughout the industry from the workers within the mines to the small businesses and corporations which supported the President’s ideals.

>Today that's exactly what happened as the Corsa Coal Corp’s Acosta Mine, the first if it's kind; opened with great celebration 60 miles south of Pittsburgh. Hundreds of miners and leaders from local communities as well as respected business owners gathered to a flag waving and patriotic celebration of the opportunities that will present itself to the Coal Industry under President Trump.

>President Trump himself gathering screaming cheers of support from the high energy and enthusiastic crowd sent a video message to those in attendance saying, “When I campaigned for president I said that we would end the war on coal and put our incredible miners. That's what you are you are incredible. Back to work!” The crowd was hysterical with excitement knowing that their President loves and supports their valiant and often times dangerous efforts.

>This specific mine which will process and excavate metallurgical coal, will be used for the always booming American steel industry. Analysts expect it to create over 100 full-time and high paying jobs. This is great for a region struggling with economic decay and high unemployment during the Obama years. Hundreds of job applications already have poured in.



DC & Maryland Attorney Generals To Sue President Trump Alleging Breach of Constitutional Oath Reader 06/12/2017 (Mon) 10:11:28 Id: 3cdc57 [Preview] No. 970 [Reply]
http://thegoldwater.com/news/3552-Liberals-from-Maryland-Sue-Potus-for-Breach-of-Constitutional-Oath


>After the major failure of the Comey Testimony vindicated President Trump of any personal wrongdoings, the Liberal government entities have taken a new angle of attack to target the Trump Administration.

>The Attorney Generals for both the District of Columbia and the state of Maryland intend to file motions on Monday to sue President Trump alleging that he has somehow ‘violated anti-corruption clauses in the Constitution’ by accepting payments from foreign governments since his administration took over the White House.

>This is another obvious alternative to keep anguish stirred against the President, as in early January then President-Elect Donald J. Trump shifted his assets into a private trust to be managed by his sons Eric and Donald Jr.

>President Trump did not have to make such a maneuver however he did to show his integrity and goal of Making America Great Again first and foremost. Even with his shift of assets Liberal mouthpiece D.C. Attorney General Karl A. Racine (D) and Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh (D) make the claim President Trump has failed to separate public duties and private business interests.

>There are no laws preventing President Trump from hearing a status report that his corporation is successful. Eric Trump has said the President would absolutely continue to receive inclusive updates about his company’s financial health and well-being, as anyone would expect to do in a similar situation to know that their life's work is secure.

>Many suggest this is an attempt from the left to shift away from their devastating failure of a Russia-Trump narrative to continue to embroil the President in controversy as there is still a special counsel overseeing associates of President Trump to be led by former FBI Director Robert Mueller upcoming in the future.

>Racine and Frosh suggest they will use the discovery process to obtain copies of Trump’s personal tax returns to monitor his foreign business dealings. There is zero doubt out of respect for his privacy and the fact that the general public has made clear by electing President Trump that they don't care about his returns; that President Trump's attorneys will fight such an attempt from the Liberal law hounds that keep searching red meat.

Well, I'm glad you weren't surprised and spilled your tea.

It's just the text contains some of the most absurd things I've ever seen.
>“It hit us that maybe we can cleverly combine this beanie fashion with an upside-down ramen bowl. That’s how it got incorporated into the design.”
>“We made the face and facial expressions feel like something out of an animated movie to give a sense of familiarity. We arranged the facial parts by centering them around the eyes, taking into account the positioning and balance,” Ishikawa said. “We thought we could create simple and easy to read expressions that the audience can relate to.”



President Trump Brilliantly Reverses Obama Obama's Terrifying Cuba Policies Reader 06/11/2017 (Sun) 11:21:30 Id: b8489e [Preview] No. 960 [Reply]
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/06/10/trump-in-miami-speech-set-to-roll-back-obamas-cuba-policy.html

>President Trump will head to Miami, home to a large and influential Cuban-American community, to unveil his administration’s new Cuba policy -- which will roll back central parts of his predecessor’s efforts to normalize ties with the Communist island nation, according to a senior administration official and other sources.

>While details on the changes to the policy have yet to be fully revealed, a U.S. official suggested that Trump would call for Cuban President Raul Castro to push for more political freedom and to release democratic activists in Cuban prisons, among other initiatives.

>Trump is at the same time expected to announce a reversal in some areas of former President Barack Obama's previous steps toward normalizing relations including the opening of embassies between the two countries and the easing of flight restrictions between the U.S. and Cuba.

>The final actions have not been set as the review over the specifics of the plan continues. However, there will likely be steps in restricting travel from the U.S. to Cuba; there are now daily flights from Florida to Cuba. Another directive being weighed is taking steps to limit American companies from dealing with businesses owned by the Cuban military, U.S. sources confirm to Fox News.

>While campaigning in Miami during a stop in September of 2016, then-Republican presidential nominee Trump hinted at such a move, tying it to demands on the Cuban government.

>“All of the concessions Barack Obama has granted the Castro regime were done through executive order which means our next president can reverse them,“ Trump said. "And that I will do unless the Castro regime meets our demands.”

>“Those demands include religious and political freedom for the Cuban people, and the freeing of political prisoners,” Trump added.

>"It's a hard day's work every day, but it's worth it," one miner said.

45th President Of The United a States Donald J. Trump Keeps His Promises As Always To Make America Safe Again Reader 06/11/2017 (Sun) 11:07:45 Id: ed6202 [Preview] No. 958 [Reply]

As Trump Sounds Urgent Note on Travel Ban, a Vetting Revamp Grinds On


>WASHINGTON — When a federal judge blocked President Trump’s first attempt to impose a travel ban on seven majority-Muslim nations, Mr. Trump warned of “death & destruction” from dangerous people who “may be pouring into our country.”

>“Courts must act fast!” he implored on Twitter.

>But in the 128 days since, the president’s administration has exhibited little urgency of its own.

>Mr. Trump’s lawyers have moved slowly in responding to legal challenges to the White House’s initial and revised travel bans. And immigration experts say the administration has not taken steps it could have — even while the latest ban is tied up in the courts — to achieve the restriction’s stated goal: to tighten the vetting of people trying to get into the United States.

>The result has been that almost halfway through his first year in office, Mr. Trump has made few changes to the way people enter the United States from the countries he has deemed the most dangerous, despite his frequent campaign promises to institute “extreme vetting.”
